Alan Bargebuhr (Cadence magazine)
The way the pianist Andrea Frascaroli revisits and updates the standards repertoire is highly original and witty
Vittorio Lo Conte (allaboutjazz italia)
Andrea Frascaroli's style and touch stick out among the skills of the musicians involved in Change the world, his solos highlight self-confidence and a clear melodic mood in every tune
Gianpaolo Chiriacò (Jazz It)
With wise elegance Andrea Frascaroli, an excellent pianist, guides his trio through a variety of musical arrangements full of feeling, creativity and enthusiasm.
